In the Maker Shed: ShapeLock

ShapeLock is a super tough, space age plastic that can be hand molded by simply heating it in hot water. It’s completely non-toxic and can be reused indefinitely. When cool, this lightweight material can be drilled, machined, and even painted with acrylic paints. Shapelock is available in both 250 gram and 500 gram bags in the Maker Shed.


The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
